About 2 weeks old- Bottle. dark Gold color, minor lacing. Sweet hay and caramel aroma with some piney hops. Malt sweetness dominates, but also bitter pine and some grapefruit. Alcohol noticeable. Could be a more little hop forward especially on the nose but a very drinkable 10% IIPA

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
The beer poured orange amber in color, and the body looked quite hazy, when held up against a light. The head formed to a height of two fingers thick, and left spotty lace around the glass. The smell was a blend of hops and malts, giving an impression of balanced beer. The blended aromas reminded me the most of mangoes and peaches. Since I was sampling this beer nine months past the hand written bottled on date, I wonder if the hops were more pronounced at one time. The taste was very mellow, with a good tropical fruit flavor, followed by a kick of spicy hops. The body was quite tick for the style, making this beer start to encroach on barleywine territory. The beer was enjoyable DIPA, but sadly not a memorable one.

Cloudy orange pour with a sticky, white head.
Flowery hops and sweet candy malt aroma.
The flavor has dusty bitterness and malt sweetness.
I’d prefer it to be crisper in the hops and less sweet.

Another nice BH beer. One of my fav GA breweries. Rusty orange color with good head retention. Resin and pine in the aroma. Honey candy sweetness, tropical fruits, pine, medium maltiness and slight booze presence. Lots of flavor and bubbly mouthfeel for a big IPA. Nice!

Amber color with a thick white head. Aroma is pine hops with something a little fruity. Flavor is strong pine hops with a very sweet finish. A little too far on the sweet side though it finishes nicely.

3/31/15. 22oz bottle from Five Points, bottled 3/18. Nice orange pour with a perfect khaki head, pretty good lacing. Big, pungent aroma, loads of candied grapefruit and pine, enough malt to back without overwhelming me, and just a touch of booze showing as it warms. Good flavor as well, nice bitterness, just enough malt to balance, what would put it over the top for me is more hop character and flavor, a little more new age. This is old school loads of candied grapefruit and pine, reminds of Hopslam in a way. I dig it!

Hazy golden pour with a frothy white head. Big sweet candy like aroma but a nice punch of citrus. Flavors were sweet, candied hops, bitter hops, big fruits. Viscous mouthfeel with lighter carbonation. Lingering bittersweet finish. Overall a pretty solid big IPA without much balance but tasty nonetheless. Always glad to see another bomber addition from BHB. Rock on!
